definetly helps the clunk. You'll get vibs at idle but other than that it should be good! Focus is fun to drive because its nimble. Add some extra power and its great to drive nimble and quick. I want to throw a FSwerks turbo on it at some point. I hear it responds quite well to that

Yes, I use to have eibach lowering springs but now just have the ford racing kit, still handles well. Turbo would be great for sure, about 300whp I wouldn't complain at all!
